Good morning, YA SciFi Geniuses!
I'm signing off for the summer now because I have a baby to make and that's a lot of work.
If you get bored, I'd really appreciate if you'd invent a Fetal Transport Unit for me, like the one the Doctor used to deliver Naomi Wildman on Star Trek Voyager. While you're at it, a replicator would be nice too..
Live long and prosper.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/swedenoffbeat This article's about a Swedish couple who are fighting for the right to name their son "Q." Well, you know how I feel about parental rights and the right of individuality. When the state can dictate what you can and can't name your own child, good grief. Besides, as a Trekkie, I think 'Q' is perfect.

Good evening, YA SciFi Geniuses! Yep, I'm still around, just beached and severely limited in what I can do until after I recover from giving birth. Anyway, remember how worried I was about the new STAR TREK movie? Doing a remake of such an iconic Science Fiction show was a tall order I feared no human could hope to accomplish. I mean, good grief, just think of all the real life scientists and technology inspired by the original t.v. series, like Dr. Mae Jemeson, the first African American woman in space, and those doors which slide open for you at the grocery store.
However, my good Blog Buddy, Tia, over at the Fantasy Debut has seen it and is sufficiently impressed, which makes me want to go. My husband is also reassured by initial reviews. We have to wait until after my doctor's appointment tomorrow. I might get put on medical bedrest and then it'll have to wait. Thankfully, there's a theater in Anchorage which runs movies that have already left all the other theaters, so there's a good chance I'll still get to see it in all that wonderful movie house magic.
Here's the link to Tia's review- http://fantasydebut.blogspot.com/2009/05/movie-review-star-trek.html Isn't the new Mr. Sulu hot? Of course, I always thought the first one was too.
